The league leaders head east for a showdown against the Black-and-Red, coming off a road draw with Columbus last weekend.
League-leading FC Dallas travels to RFK Stadium on Saturday night, fresh off a 2-1 win over Toronto FC, and sporting an impressive 5-1-1 record.
If DCU is to pick up points on Saturday, it will likely need to shut down the duo of Michel and Mauro Diaz, which has had a hand in 15 of FCD's league-leading 17 goals this season. Eight of those 17 goals have come off set pieces.
Despite the league-best record, FC Dallas is still yet to keep a clean sheet this season, which will be good news for Eddie Johnson. The offseason acquisition from Seattle has still yet to open his account for his new team.
In goal, Andrew Dykstra has started three straight games for DCU while Bill Hamid has been sidelined with a toe injury. The U.S. national team goalkeeper will likely be a game-time decision for Saturday's match.
